Victory over the Attic!

After a great deal of delays (because so much heat!) the attic is finally as finished as it's going to be now.

As you'll see in the video, there are some things not done.

There are several boxes that are left over from my husband's former company. I did a preliminary sort in 2010. He has to be the one to do the rest. He's going to take one hour a week and go through them. Yes, that's slow, but the hard part is starting! And I believe that he can do it!

One of the dressers is still in there. Eric's great-grandfather made it, and (despite the top two drawers breaking a few years ago) it's still very solid and very heavy. It's sitting in the place we've designated for our AC units once the Summer ends, and sitting on top of it are the clothes my husband needs to look at to see which box he's going to be donating. Since that's space that we don't need for at least a month, we're just going to let those things stay there, and when we take the AC units out, we'll move the dresser out then. We would like to refinish it. Maybe turn the gap where the drawers were into a shelf?

I think the best most useful things that I did are below

  • The box inventory lists

  • The chalk labels on the floor

  • Probably goes without saying, but getting rid of all the things we no longer need.

It was a big project, but I am so glad that I did it!

I hope you're inspired to tackle any spaces in your home that seem daunting. And if you can't do it alone, you know who to call. ;)

Why Pride.

I wasn't entirely sure if I was going to have #Pride promos this year. I am not a fan of rainbow capitalism* and I didn't want to feel like I was participating in that. And then a store where I worked
